Barstool Sports President Stands up to Union Thuggery

Published

on

On August 12, 2019, sports website The Ringer announced that it would be unionizing its staff.

However, Barstool Sports President David Portnoy was not impressed. Portnoy mocked The Ringer’s decision to unionize.

 He stated the following:

 Listen I’m sure there are reasons for Unions to exist in some companies.  Like inhumane working conditions, bosses who get their jollys filming their employees dicks in the shower, bosses who makes girls cry, fat pens etc.  But for the most part Unions are a fucking joke.

Portnoy then added that unions have outlived their original purpose and only serve to satisfy the whims of spoiled millenials:

Just crybaby millennials who think the world should be handed to them on a silver platter.  That if you cry loud enough the world will hand you a cookie.  Listen if you don’t like your job or don’t think you get paid enough than quit and go find a new one.   If you are as good as you think you then your current employer will give you a raise to keep you or you’ll find a new job that gives you what you want.  It’s simple Capitalism.  Supply and demand.

This blog did not sit well with left-wing Twitter activists.

A writer for Live Science, Rafi Letzter, stirred controversy by trying to reach out to Barstool workers.  He tweeted, “If you work for Barstool and want to have a private chat about the unionization process, how little power your boss has to stop you, and how you can leverage that power to make your life better: my DMs are open.”

This prompted a firm response from Portnoy, in which he said “If you work for @barstoolsports and DM this man I will fire you on the spot.”

Andy Campbell, a senior writer for The Huffington Post, piled on the calls for unionization stating that “If you work for @barstoolsports your rights are under attack and you should organize to fight for them.”

The New York State Department of Labor also chimed in on this exchange declaring that “It is illegal to take any unfavorable action – including termination – against employees for union-related activities under the National Labor Relations Act. New York is a proud union state. We say no way, no how to intimidation, threats and union busting.”

Barstool Sports was founded in Boston, but is currently headquartered in New York City.

Soon, this Twitter exchange ended up drawing freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez into the mix. She declared that “If you’re a boss tweeting firing threats to employees trying to unionize, you are likely breaking the law &can be sued, in your words, “on the spot.” ALL workers in the US have the protected freedom to organize for better conditions. See @NLRB &union orgs like @AFLCIO for tips.”

So far, Portnoy has not given into the pressure and has maintained a firm stance in not unionizing his employees.

Bill Gates Believes Everything Won’t be Normal Until there is Widespread Vaccination in America

Published

on

LifeSite News reported that Microsoft founder Bill Gates believes life will not be the same after the Wuhan Virus subsides.

However, there’s a catch.

Things will not go back to “normal” until the population is “widely vaccinated.”

During an  interview with CBS This Morning, that went out on April 2, Gates predicted that people’s concerns about large public gatherings would be alleviated “once we have the vaccination.” This could potentially take 18 months to come about.

“Our foundation works a lot on diagnostics and vaccines,” Gates stated. Vaccine producers are the ones “that can really get things back on track where we’re not worried about large public gatherings.”

In Gates’ view, “there’s a lot of dialog between our foundation experts and the government,” about opening up life to normal activities after the pandemic is under control.

“Which activities, like schools, have such benefit and can be done in a way that the risk of transmission is very low? And which activities, like mass gatherings, may be – in a certain sense – more optional? And so until you’re widely vaccinated, those may not come back at all.”

The Microsoft founder floated 18 months as a possible timeline for a reversion to normalcy.

Gates is a well-known proponent of abortion and population control. He has talked about using vaccines in the past as a means of controlling world’s population.

“Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we lower that [the population] by perhaps 10 or 15 percent,” he said at a 2010 TED  conference.

Some parents are obviously concerned about the implications for parental rights, health, or religious freedoms if a vaccine is introduced.

During the CBS interview, Gates claimed that there are currently “seven or more” potential vaccines that could fight the Wuhan Virus pandemic. In order to guarantee that there are billions of doses of the vaccine available right out of the gate, Gates put forward the idea of building factories that would mass produce each of these vaccines as testing is being conducted concurrently.

Gates admitted that “only probably two of the vaccines will be the ones we go ahead with,” conceding that there exist major risks involved in seeing this plan through.

Gates also commented that a national strategy to the Wuhan Virus pandemic is needed, alluding to what he wrote about in a Washington Post op-ed on April 1.

“Because people can travel freely across state lines, so can the virus. The country’s leaders need to be clear: Shutdown anywhere means shutdown everywhere. Until the case numbers start to go down across America – which could take 10 weeks or more – no one can continue business as usual or relax the shutdown,” Gates commented.

In the CBS This Morning interview, Gates stressed the importance of acting quickly after the Wuhan Virus outbreak.

“We understand what needs to be done here. It’s going to be very painful. But taking the pain early means there’s a lot less pain both medically and economically than if we dilly-dally and wait until every town has big numbers before we react.”

Gates said that the Wuhan Virus pandemic will cost trillions of dollars, on top of hundreds of thousands of lives globally when it’s all said and done. “For the next one, we will be far more ready than we were for this one,” he predicted.

As many Americans seek to protect their liberties in a time of uncertainty — as evidenced by the number of people rushing to buy firearms and ammo — globalist oligarchs like Gates are concocting plots to advance crony capitalist projects that will infringe on the rights of millions of Americans.

Gates may have been a great entrepreneur, his politics, on the other hand, are straight out of the globalist playbook.
